SOUND MENTAL HEALTH AND THE CHURCH .....This is where you and I in church come in. Mental health impairment doesn't easily show up and can be masked on the face, in that smile, hug or handshake or conversation. We have a duty and responsibility to be our brother's or sister's keeper. Let's not conclude that , “Oh this so and so I don't know why he or she isn't coming to the cell meeting " or "you see so and so did not come for service", or "so and so is not picking up his or her calls or replying your emails", or "so and so isn't partnering or paying tithe anymore", or "so and so isn't vibrant anymore" and the list goes on. Let's not be quick to judge or jump into conclusions or assume but let us take, make, create more time to care, visit, connect, pray and fellowship together, not just phone calls, texting, emailing or chatting over the Internet or telephone line these are all mediums that have been designed to help us stay or keep in touch but the flip aspect of this is that they could also be walls that divide, isolate, ostracize or keep us apart. BE A THOUGHTFUL, TRUE AND KIND FRIEND Life's not all about the goals, visions, dreams, accomplishments, projects and tasks; let's not get consumed and all caught up with the work of the Lord whiles neglecting the Lord of the work and His People for whom He died. Let's care for the orphans, elderly, widows or widowers, single Moms or Dads right in the midst of our families, local church, communities or sphere of contact. It really doesn't cost that much to care, reach out and lend a helping hand. At the end of the day Jesus is far more particular about our love, treatment and love for others than anything else. Recall Jesus's emphasis of tending to His sheep :Matthew 25:35-46 TPT "For when you saw me hungry, you fed me. When you found me thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I had no place to stay, you invited me in, and when I was poorly clothed, you covered me. When I was sick, you tenderly cared for me, and when I was in prison you visited me.’ “Then the godly will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty and give you food and something to drink? When did we see you with no place to stay and invite you in? When did we see you poorly clothed and cover you? When did we see you sick and tenderly care for you, or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will answer them, ‘Don’t you know? When you cared for one of the least important of these my little ones, my true brothers and sisters, you demonstrated love for me.’ “Then to those on his left the King will say, ‘Leave me! For you are under the curse of eternal fire that has been destined for the devil and all his demons. For when you saw me hungry, you refused to give me food, and when you saw me thirsty, you refused to give me something to drink. I had no place to stay, and you refused to take me in as your guest. When you saw me poorly clothed, you closed your hearts and would not cover me. When you saw that I was sick, you didn’t lift a finger to help me, and when I was imprisoned, you never came to visit me.’ “And then those on his left will say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty and not give you food and something to drink? When did we see you homeless, or poorly clothed? When did we see you sick and not help you, or in prison and not visit you?’ “Then he will answer them, ‘Don’t you know? When you refused to help one of the least important among these my little ones, my true brothers and sisters, you refused to help and honor me.’ And they will depart from his presence and go into eternal punishment. But the godly and beloved ‘sheep’ will enter into eternal bliss.” LOVE IN WORD AND DEEDS - The times we are living is so fast paced that sometimes it seems many are increasingly, more concerned about self preservation than SOULS preservation. This is one of the signs of the end "men will become lovers of themselves rather than lovers of God". Looking beyond the things we want and need for ourselves and families, to the things we've been commissioned to do by our Christ is the higher calling and greater honor. Narrow is that God-path least travelled by many these days. But you and I are different! We walk God's path least traveled and blaze trails for others to find their way to Him That's why He called us " the Light of the world:, " a city set on a hill that can't be hid", "the salt of the earth". .....Perhaps there is someone who is sitting immobilized by loss of a loved one, pain, neglect, fear or hurt at home wishing someone would visit, ring and suggest, pray with or talk with them; well anything rather than these walls of isolation? Have you scheduled a cell meeting or visitation planned, or arranged to have tea or coffee with friends and suddenly one or two in the midst just seemed to cancel or not show up at the last minute? Or when they promised to call you, they did not because they didn't want to but they just couldn't held captive by thoughts of rejection, exclusion, abandonment, hesitancy or perplexity? Or when they are invited to come along to visit others with you, they tell you how terribly sorry they are and are fully booked up all weekend when they are actually busy doing nothing in particular barely holding it together in their tiny little safe box and then the first problem which seemed to start with one's little acquiescence has now grown up like a giant and then people stop calling, emailing, texting, chatting; the invites to cell meetings, tea or coffee stop and the isolation that at first was a perception becomes the only reality. DON'T GIVE UP ON THOSE WHO SEEM OUT OF SIGHT OR MIND....LIGHT YOUR WORLD .....Please don't give up on your friends, your brother, your sister in Christ. Dare to break through those invisible walls and brave the divide to call them up, go round to their house to actually visit even when they don't want you to, because they really do they just don't know how to say it. Everyone says: "If you need anything, don't hesitate, I'll be there for you". But do we really practice this! Do we remember to send a birthday gift, celebrate when others are celebrating or do we only celebrate those we know? Let's show our love for Jesus by sharing Him with others? Can you go look for them who you haven't seen in church in a while? We have our christianese that we speak, our language of faith because we are not raised to whine, complain or talk about the mountain but to talk to the mountain. So when you ask someone, " how are you doing? He or she says "I am perfect and excellent, doing great", when he's probably not had any meal in the last two days, rent is due, bills are piling up, kids are out of school, currently without a job or just simply requires someone to pray and agree with them in Faith; connect them to their next big break or opportunity; or someone to simply be a repairer of the breach, rebuilder of waste places and the restorer of paths and homes to dwell in.We may not be able to help everybody, but we can start by helping one person or family at a time. They probably need you now more than ever perhaps before Satan gets to suggest suicide to them as their only way out, you'd be right there to catch them right in the nick of time before they fall into the abyss of despair!! As for me God's grace helping me, I will not cease to pray for you and should you need me I will be there for you. You can write us at email@example.com. Our today's cuppa ☕is quite spicy and hot.
